Okay, but there was not much "honey" as far as taste/aroma. My first sampling from a beerfest a few months back was creamier in mouth feel and had a slight Russian Imperial "whiskyness" to it. My most recent one was weaker, less flavorful. Looks good at first pour with a decent head but evaporates quickly. Mouthfeel was more like an IPA than a porter. Just average and I was expecting much better.
